. a compelling message as to why they should throw out barack obama because the economy in ohio is doing better than it is in other parts of the country. >> it is and the question is, who gets the credit ryan joins me now along with roland martin. roland, that was the kind of, you're not afraid to say what you think. a kick in the you know, at least they're saying they feel the way they feel. >> actually, honesty is always the best policy. it's amazing they are making sarah palin out to look like a you know, profit, if you will, when she said they should go rogue. they're going to have to get more aggressive in this campaign in order to close this gap. these debates are going to be critical, but again, these ceo frankly is giving a muddy story if you will as to why he should be the person. i love boxing, erin and they say you don't win the belt of the champion on points. you take it and mitt romney hasn't done that. he has to take it if he wants to win the presidency. >> it makes sense, but ryan, what in the world is he supposed to do? it sounds like he tried to be aggressive. after the attacks
and the economy even though it's terrible. it's sort of the -- >> right track, wrong track? that's interesting. tell me. just stretch that out a little bit. >> i think americans see a glimmer of hope. there is slight improvement in the economy, and i think that some people, for example, a state like ohio, battleground state, thanks in my view to the governor that the unemployment is down. that's true in some of the others. i understand how tough this campaign is. i do believe that media coverage has something to do with it. maybe right up to election day americans will still be making up their minds. >> let's turn to overseas. i know there are some things that concern you, but let me first ask you about libya, the deaths of those four americans, including the american ambassador to libya on september 11th. friday we got the administration sort of definitive statement this looks as though it was a preplanned attack by a terrorist group and some of whom were sympathetic to al qaeda. why do you think and are you bothered that it has taken them this long from september 11th to now to get to this c
. if you don't believe me, look at the numbers that just came out in the growth of our economy. 1.3% verses russia at 4%. china at 7% to 8%. we're at 1.3%. this is unacceptable. it is not working. i know what it takes to get us working. he's put us on a road to europe. europe doesn't work in europe. i want to get us back to being america where people come here, build enterprises here. we fulfill american dreams. we keep the hope alive in america. [ cheers and applause ] and this matters. you know this matters. this counts. it counts for the 23 million people struggling to get a job, getting a better job today. it counts for the young peoe. today we wonder whether that's true. the majority of americans don't think that's the case. this matters. there's one more sense in which it matters. that's what i began with, and that is our military capability. our ability to defend our liberty and the liberty of our friends around the world, with whom we trade and with whom we trade and whose prosperity depends on our trade. i was in poland and got the chance to meet a hero. i came in and he said, mr.
zero economy. the past ten years, zero jobs growth, zero wage growth, zero stock returns. which part of that equation is the most crippling? >> i think all of them. if you think about the middle class, where they need jobs, they need wage growth. we've seen average meaning household income actually go nowhere and importantly in their 401(k)s have become 201 ks, they need robust stock returns. if we're going to get wage growth and jobs growth clearly we have to do, as the guest said, we have to restore the manufacturing base. one good news i have in this triple zero economy, i think going forward the next decade for stock returns will be a lot better than the last decade. the reason is simple and somewhat troubling. first of all, if you think about the stock market here in america, it's physically located here but increasingly, its returns are located elsewhere. >> sorry to interrupt you. the very thing that's been a trend many would say hurtful for american workers is the thing that can help american investors because these are companies that don't necessarily need american workers.
about the economy, talking about the deficit, talking about four years of president obama would be detrimental to the country. it's pretty plain and simple. president obama and republican nominee mitt romney are laying low today because they're getting ready to prepare for the debate, so it's the number 2s on the campaign trail. right behind me here, here's paul ryan stumping here in new hampshire, a crucial battleground state. when he's done here, he goes to ohio later today. another very big important battleground state. and that's the whole idea here, as the president and mitt romney get ready for the debate. paul ryan and vice president joe biden are on the campaign trail. specific new hampshire. the race here is kind of close. the most recent poll shows president obama with a five-point advantage over mitt romney. definitely a very close contest here in new hampshire. this is a state that may not know paul ryan very well, but knows mitt romney very well, who was governor of neighboring massachusetts. he owns a vacation home here in new hampshire. spends a lot of time in thi

-founded companies. silicon valley tends to be a harbinger of things to come in the national economy. nationwide it accounted for the creation of half a million jobs tweens 1995 and 2005. so why are we sees a reverse brain drain? on the one hand, we're now seeing a tangible impact of what i call the rise of the rest. the u.s. remains a pre-eminent power with the best institutions of higher learning and research in the world, but increasingly if you're an immigrant from india, china, or brazil, you can find competitive opportunities for growth at home too. as these economies continue to develop, they will invest more in infrastructure, making businesses more attractive. but another development, one which we can control, is even more worrying. we're losing our huge advantage in immigration, especially in skill-based immigration. our system is broken. he points out that we allocate 140,000 green cards or permanent residency status to people who are here on work visas. these visas allow workers to jump shep from working on a company to starting on their own, creating jobs, but the law stipulates tha
: the message of the day was not only that he can fix the economy, it's that he can feel it. >> there are so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. i know what it takes to get an economy going again and creating jobs. >> reporter: the straight from the heart appeal is echoed in a new ad that shows romney looking directly into the camera. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: translation, pay no attention to the man in that hidden camera video. >> the 47% who are with him, who are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >>
ago, europeans were worried about whether the american economic crisis would blow their economies off course. >> now it's the other way. >> today it's very much the other way round. actually, america, given where they came from on all this, actually it's pretty remarkable that they are where they are today. >> one of your successors, british prime minister david cameron has been in new york this week and went on the letterman show. he got hijacked a bit. let's watch a bit of this. i'm sure you'll enjoy this. >> and the literal translation was what? >> again, you're testing me. >> it would be good if you knew this. >> no, no. you found me out. >> oh, good heavens. magna carta literally means great chart. >> he ruined it. i was going to ask you. be honest. >> magna carta, because i'm slightly older than david cameron so i learned latin in school. >> you would have known? >> well, by the way he learned latin in school. let me tell you, there is nothing worse than being on these types of shows -- i used to get -- i would never get nervous about, you know, certain level of apprehension abo
. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> reporter: in scrubbing through the demographics, the regional numbers, here's one thing they will like at the obama campaign. among white voters nationally, the president gets 41%. governor romney gets 56%. gove
on president obama and the economy. how has he managed to avoid public retribution for not fixing the economy better than he has done? >> because this is not a normal time. >> plus his extraordinary work with the clinton global initiative. >> we don't have to produce miracles. all we have to produce is progress. we just keep pushing these rocks up the hill. >> is the world ready for a clinton back in the office? >> i can run for president of ireland because of my irish heritage. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." good evening. the most powerful man and woman in the world are gathered in new york tonight at the u.n. and across town at the clinton global initiative. president obama spoke at cgi today. we'll get to that in a moment. he had tough talk on iran's nuclear program. >> let me be clear. america wants to resolve this through diplomacy and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. >> with just 42 days to go until the election, mitt romney blasted iran in his speech to the cgi. >> a voice of unspeakable evil and hatred has spoken out, threaten

signs about the u.s. economy. home prices are on the rise. and so is consumer confidence. cnn's chief business correspondent, ali velshi, is joining us from new york right now. ali, update us on the latest information coming in. >> well, two pieces of information that are really key to people's decisions about how they feel about the economy. consumer confidence is a measure of how people feel about the current situation and what it's going to be in the future. it rose nine points in september. that was after a decline in august. so in august people were feeling like things weren't going in the right direction. now the latest reading is that americans are feeling quite strong. so that's a good bump in consumer confidence. now, here's the thing. if there's a cloud, an economic cloud over us right now, the silver lining has been housing. we have seen inventories drop, foreclosures slow down, prices start to stabilize and even rise. we have a great measure called the case shiler index. it measures 20 urban areas, 20 cities across the united states. and it is now measured the third consec
years like the last four years. we have to get the economy going again. >> campaigns go head to head. what the latest means. nate silver will be asked if romney can win and deepak chopra, wesley clark and ameerah al-taweel. things get lively at the clinton global initiative. >> you want to make farming sexy, don't you. >> furious talk from the angriest man in america, lewis black. >> the whole world coming here. you are screwing up the traffic. this is "piers morgan tonight." good evening. our big story tonight mahmoud ahmadinejad made his speech. the u.s. and canadian delegation stayed away. even so mahmoud ahmadinejad painted iran as the victim and to blame israel. ultramodern weaponry and pledge to disclose armaments in due time is now being used as a new language of threat against nations to crush them to to accepting a new era. continued threats by the uncivilized to resort military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> crystal spent i'm in iran. his best selling book is "half the sky" turning oppression in to opportunity for women
cain had to say about the economy, but in the context of that romney ad, it only presented the words as if they were coming right out of the president's mouth and that wasn't the case. i've tried to go back to the romney campaign and say was this the ad that you corrected or removed. they just haven't gotten back to me on that. but anderson, mii mean, the rean why this is so important and crucial to the romney campaign, this line of attack on welfare and on welfare reform, what they accuse the president of doing with welfare reform, it fits into a narrative that they've been trying to say about the president for weeks now and that is that the president encourages government dependency, that he would rather see people who are dependent on government than go back into the work force and you heard mitt romney talk about that in the interview today, that he wants to get more people back to work instead of being dependent on government, and so that is why you did not see him back away from that claim today. >> lori, do you recall the romney campaign removing or correcting any ads or frank
, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. if you've had enough, ask your dermatologist about enbrel. >>> the economy is one of the biggest issues for voters this year. so, cnn money asked 17 experts and the question they posed was this. who would be better for the economy, mitt romney, would it be barack obama. let's bring in alison kosik. she has the answers. s she's standing by for me at the new york stock exchange. they said who? >> they reluctantly said, brooke, romney. romney would be better for the economy. here's what's sad about this survey that cnn money did, these economists weren't excited about either one of them when asked who would be better for the economy. they asked 17 economists. nine picked romney three picked obama. the math doesn't add up because five couldn't commit to anybody because they said it didn't matter. they couldn't figure out who would fix the economy on their own. they just weren't enthusiastic about one candidate or the other. >> but, you and weir jui were t last week, alison, we learned president obama is a job creator. why isn't that helping him with the economis
on the right track. >> secretary reish -- >> if i could just say one thing before we go to the economy, i think it's much more dangerous in terms of public opinion to jump to conclusions. to say, for example, there are weapons of mass destruction in a country where it turns out there are not weapons of mass destruction, i think again, you want to be very careful before you cast blame and you label people terrorists. i think the administration has been enormously responsible. the easiest -- >> you also don't want to downplay it and say it was attributed to a video when that clearly wasn't the case and they were overtaken by facts. >> let's move on to the economic front. secretary reish, the obama campaign has been making some very specific claims about how mitt romney's tax plan would affect the middle class. the governor can fight back by offering evidence the claims aren't true. do you think they have done enough to actually offer specifics, and do you think he's going to have to do that at the debate? >> i think he's going to have to offer specifics at some time, anderson. i mean, look, there
trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. >>> with only 35 days until the election, a pair of republicans want the secretary of state hillary clinton to testify next week about the deadly attack on the united states consulate in benghazi, libya. it's the only congressional hearing on in matter scheduled between now and election day, november 6th. in their letter to the secretary today, the house oversight committee chairman daryl issa revealed new information about the attack. and i'm quoting from the letter now. "multiple u.s. federal government officials have confirmed to the committee that prior to the september 11 attack the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi." the letter then continues. the mission was denied these resources by officials in washington. the house democratic leader nancy pelosi is here in "the situation room." let's get to some of the news. let's get your reaction right now to what chairman issa and congressman chaffetz are saying? >> i think it's important the congress has t
economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> but not all the numbers paint a gloomy picture. the labor department announced it undercounted nearly 400,000 jobs in 2011 meaning that 4.4 million jobs have been created since the president's inauguration. slightly more than the number lost in that same period. but the president said there's still measuring work to do. >> we're not where we need to be. not yet. we've got a lot more folks who have to get back to work. we've got a lot more work to do to make the middle class secure again. but the question is, who's plan is better for you? >> an obama win in republican-leaning virginia could deal romney a crushing blow. the president won here four years ago becoming the first democrat to do so since lyndon johnson. but in the state the military vote is not the only game in town. football fans are everywhere. so it's no surprise a reporter asked romney about the deal to end the dispute between the nfl and its referees. a question romney appeared to fumble. >> what do you think about the nfl refs? >> i sure hope they do. >> well, the refs will be back and
the case that the best defense is a better economy. >> in battle ground virginia both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery. romney slammed the president for the defense cuts coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility.
economy. >> this is a serious charge. you're suggesting because t average boy or girl on the bus doesn't relate to rom i in, most of them are not mormon or come from the world of finance or have a hard time relating, that they're letting that influence the way they cover him as a presidential candidate when we do have to point out here he's made a lot of miss stanges which should, of course brks covered. >> i'm not denying that but i do thifrmgt certain candidates don't get the positive coverage. i think that that personal december like doesn't help. al gore dealt with some of those same things, being seen as stiff, wasn't friendly to them and i just think that does -- whether or not the reporters are trying, i think it colors the coverage. >> i think it's more about personality with regard to politics and paul ryan is the best example. thanks to the real vivid finance his message and also how he conveys it, i think he's had pretty fabulous treatment in the press and maybe actually a lack of scrutiny of what he's saying. >> i'm going to call a halt here because i want to talk about pau
. we have these pro growth solutions for opportunity and upward mobility in the dynamic economy. you have the president promising four more years of stagnation and dependency. >> paul ryan acknowledges what he calls missteps and admitting mistakes, missteps. is that a deliberate strategy? >> i don't know if it's a smart strategy. but i know it's a realistic strategy. obviously they're down in the polls. i think he's being humble. i think he's being realistic. he's admitting there's been mistakes maitt romney said he didn't make the best articulation when speaking of the 47%. they do need to eat a little humble pie and admit things are not all rosie. we can't deny what the polls are showing. we may be able to argue with the polls a little bit, but things need to pick up. i think paul ryan admitting that this morning is a good thing and refreshing from a politician. >> effectively what he's doing is he's telling people what they already know. he's saying, look, we've done it. we don't have to talk about it. l.z, let's get to anna's point. mitt romney did speak about the 37% of obama vo

be a lot of talk by president obama about romney's 47% quote and from romney about the stagnant economy and libya. both candidates must address the issues in a concise, personal and friendly way. if you ask comedian darrell hammantd, that's tough when you're scripted. >> i think these guys use coaches which is odd to me. you know, the less coached you are, the more natural you are. the more natural you are, the more personal you are, the more personal you are, the more general you are. >> in other words, zing away. but deliver them like -- i don't know. joe the plumber? the talk back question for you today, will the presidential debate be a game changer? facebook.com/carolcnn. facebook.com/carolcnn. your responses later this hour. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule. romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters" vo: tough on china? not mitt romney. when a flood of
be playing into it. i think more of this is about the economy. polls in these states and nationwide are indicating people are starting to get a little more optimistic about the economy, and look at this, who would do a better job of the economy, this is from the quinnipiac new york times cbs polls you showed. the president with a slight advantage in all three of their states. a different story, mitt romney used to have the advantage on the economy. >> back to the ohio/florida scenario. cnn sees obama likely to win, 237 electoral votes come election day. were he to also win ohio and florida, he would have the total 284. the magic number is 270. there is no guarantee he wins both of those states or either state for that matter you see where i'm going. >> i see where you're going. the polls we're looking at give the advantage to the president, makes mitt romney's pathway to 270 much tougher. this is rich biesen, the political director for mitt romney. he doesn't see it that way. take a listen. >> they're sort of spiking the ball at the 30 yard line now. look, ohio, there is still 42 da
of the black market economy. and so you really had to parse the different kinds of types of violence taking place. and islamists or jihadi -- >> so you're saying beware of something like this. this wasn't like at that time you knew that this kind of thing could happen. >> no, there was the possibility that there were going to be jihadi actions in eastern libya. so, for example, africom, the agency, fbi, all tracking jihadi activity in eastern libya since at least 12 months ago. >> right. so they were aware. what about ambassador stevens? this story about the morning run, darrell issa included. threats against him from jihadi groups so he stopped his run for a week but then went back to it. was he too trusting? >> he was an honest broker. but i think, again, it's important to parse the kinds of violence. the threats against ambassador stevens on facebook were listed by a pro gadhafi group, which is not necessarily a jihadi group. so you've got different actors with different agendas. now, it's also important to note that the threats against ambassador stevens took place in tripoli, which is
